Does jira Application needs restart after plugin installation

I have installed a plugin in JIRA, but not sure if I have to restart the Application?

  1. Select a plugin and click the Install button. It it's a paid plugin, you can click Try to install a trial version of the plugin. A confirmation message and the plugin details will appear when the plugin is installed successfully.
    information Note: You may need to restart JIRA for your change to take effect. The Universal Plugin Manager will inform you if this is the case.
    information Note: Not all plugins can be automatically installed. Some require manual installation. These plugins will have a 'Download' button instead of an 'Install' button. In these cases, you should read and follow the plugin's installation instructions.

In my case - The Universal Plugin Manager has not informed anything, so is it fair to be assumed that it doesn't require restart?

Yes, you can try the plug-in can be used?

Yes I can able to use the plug-in.

That should be without restart

Thanks Ollie :)

No. You don't usually need a restart.

However, you should consult the documentation of the plugin being installed / upgraded.
